Precision of Age Norms in Tests Used To Assess Preschool Children.
Spector, Janet E.
Psychology in the Schools, v36 n6 p459-71 Nov 1999
Explores use of tests with more- vs. less-precise age norms to identify disabilities in preschool children. Standard scores associated with the same raw score shifted gradually across age groups on tests with more precise norms, and shifted more dramatically on tests with less precise norms. Indicates that many preschool tests have norm tables that are potentially problematic for diagnosing disabilities. (Author/JDM)
